Happy Mother’s Day! – 2015


There’s something about mothers, the bearers of life, the ultimate nurtures!

Let’s be honest, deep down we all love our mothers, even when we don’t get along with them. Mothers are the ones we want to comfort us and tell us that everything is going to be alright, whether they gave birth to us or not. There isn’t much more I can say without getting philosophical, and you guys didn’t sign up for that today. I will however state, that all mothers should be put on a pedestal and praised as much as possible, but especially on this day…unless they happen to be a bad mother. Even bad mothers are due some modicum of respect simply for what they are.

If you’d like, click the link below to see a video I made for my mother a few years back. Just to give you a reference for what’s going on in this video, I live in Virginia and she lives in Texas.

What do mothers think about reading? #MothersDay

This is a question I’ve asked of my friends and family, but have now decided to extend to any mother willing to share her option. I made a video asking three simple questions and asked mothers or mother figures to send me video, audio, or simply written answers to share with the world. I posted my video to Facebook hoping I’d get a response from those closest to me, but they are not the only ones liked like to hear from.

If you are interested in helping me with this project, you can send me your answers to the following three questions at author@etoithomas.com. If you’d like to see my video plea, click here to view it on Facebook.

1. Why or is reading important to you as a mother?

2. What book has inspired or impacted you as a mother or do you think other mothers would like?

3. If you could write a book what would you write: something autobiographical, something fictional, or something for children, etc…

This is an unoffical Author Insights post.
